The collection is divided into Sky, Land, and Sea. Today we will like to introduce to you yet another limited edition, in addition to this year Land’s Fieldmaster collection - the Prospex Diver SOLAR X LOWERCASE - Ltd Ed. 2000pcs - Ref. STBR009 which is limited only to 2000pcs worldwide.
Based on the 2017 Fieldmaster case, the Prospex Diver SOLAR X LOWERCASE - Ltd Ed. 2000pcs - Ref. STBR009 has a 200m water-resistant “Field Tuna” case, with the size of 42.7mm wide X 43mm long, making it a unisex size who are interested in a Tuna-style wristwatch. It bears a close resemblance to the “Tuna Can” design due to the outer shroud that gives the watch a tool watch aesthetic with additional protection. Furthermore, like all Seiko’s Tuna Can watch, it wears smaller than the dimensions suggest, partly due to its round case and shot lugs architecture.

Moreover, it weighs in at a light 72g, letting wearer forget easily that it is on the wrist until one needed to check the time. Combine this with a Seiko soft silicon rubber strap that adds on to the comfortability. As always, legibility is tops on this Fieldmaster Limited Edition.
As suggested by the name of this edition, the black/red (Coke-colour) theme is at center stage. The Seiko Fieldmaster STBR009 Solar features a matte black dial, whereas the "Coke" theme is found onto the bezel insert, which is colored in black and red for design synergy. The overall aesthetic is simply mesmerizing.

Further, Seiko opted with a silver tone for its bezel groves, lugs, and screws, even on the four o’clock crown. This color combination enhances the overall “ Field Tuna” look with dressier vibes (similar to the Emperor Tuna SBDX014). The hour markers and hands are both generously coated with Seiko's LumiBrite allowing it to glow brightly in the dark for hours.
The Seiko Prospex Diver SOLAR X LOWERCASE - Ltd Ed. 2000pcs - Ref. STBR009 Solar uses their proprietary Solar caliber V147 that operates for a good 10 months when fully charged.
